Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Feb. 18, 2017



So last week I’d started talking about the reincarnation upon reincarnation of myth and legend into modern sequential and narrative art- and got some pretty insightful comments on why it persists for millennia (it is said that Euripides adapted the legend of Medea himself in order to make it ...

Cultural background and comicking

HippieVan at 12:00AM, Jan. 13, 2017



My city had a massive snowfall on Boxing Day this year – the day after Christmas, for you non-Canadians. Nothing too unusual for a Canadian winter, but even so the city always seems to grind to a halt when it happens. After having a neighbour help him get his car unstuck ...

When Death Comes…

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 12, 2016



No matter what the genre, plot and general tone of your comic, death always is absolute.

What is it that needs to be original? (No, it’s not the story)

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 5, 2016
